Mathnasium of Chiswick: When Maths Makes Sense

Mathnasium of Chiswick: When Maths Makes Sense

Lilian and Sohrab

‘Children don’t hate maths. What they hate is being confused, intimidated and embarrassed by maths.’ – Larry Martinek, founder of Mathnasium

Puzzled by prime factors? Frustrated by fractions? If your children are having problems grasping mathematical concepts, help is at hand with Mathnasium, a maths-only learning centre on the High Road. Having talked to owner Lilian Ling and the Director, Sohrab Khan, I just wish there had been a Mathnasium when I was spectacularly failing the subject. It’s no wonder the centre has attracted great interest from local parents.

‘Mathnasium is very well established,’ says Lilian. ‘The method has been transforming how students learn maths for over a decade and there are now 1000-plus centres worldwide. It was devised by Larry Martinek, a school teacher in the USA who spent over 40 years developing his approach based on personal experience.

‘We focus on children from year 2 to 12 and our teaching builds upon what they already know. All new students take a customised assessment – it’s not a test, we make them very comfortable – and that enables us to pinpoint their level of knowledge. Armed with that information, Sohrab then devises a detailed personal learning plan which covers all the areas they need to work on.’

All Mathnasium tutors are fully trained in the method and, with a teaching ratio of one to three children, they are always on hand to check progress and ensure that information is understood and retained. ‘Each session lasts an hour,’ explains Lilian. ‘To see real progress, we always recommend taking two to three lessons a week over six months. The lessons can be renewed on a monthly basis, they are arranged at times to suit the student during the centre’s opening hours and we also help children to understand their school homework as part of each session.

‘We believe that every child has the ability to succeed in maths. The beauty of the Mathnasium method is that they learn in a way that suits them and in a friendly, encouraging environment.’

Mathnasium will be holding an opening party on 12 January – check the website for further details.
